Kanye West Grammy-Worn Nike Air Yeezy Prototype Sneakers

Before the official release of the Air Yeezy in 2009, Kanye West debuted his collaboration with Nike at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards. The rapper had just released his album Graduation and was up for eight nominations. Ye unveiled the sneakers during his performance of "Stronger" with Daft Punk, and the rest is sneaker history. Designed with Mark Smith, the size 12 prototypes feature a black leather upper with a tonal swoosh on the side, a velcro lace strap, and bright pink lace locks donning the signature 'Y' medallion. Inside, there's a "SAMPLE" marking and a size tag that reads "20071211," referencing the date they were made, December 11, 2007. The Nike Air Yeezy Prototype will arrive in a wooden box made specifically for the sneakers for Doernbecher auction.
